When I was about ten years old...

When I was about ten years old and before my family became interested in Christian Science, I was ill with croup. I was rushed to the hospital so that if necessary a tube could be put into my throat to help me to breathe. I am very grateful this did not ever have to be done. After that, however, whenever I manifested a chest cold, I was overwhelmed with fear.

A year or so later I was introduced to Christian Science by attending the Sunday School with a friend. I was impressed with the love and friendliness expressed, so much so that I soon had the whole family attending a branch Church of Christ, Scientist, and my parents became active members.
